If you decided that a destination vacation is not in the cards, you definitely need to come up with an amazing local bachelor or bachelorette party alternative (especially if you want your friends to show up and chip in for the costs). Since you are deciding to stay within your metropolitan area, a great option would be to book a party bus for your bachelor or bachelorette party as described below.   

What is a Party Bus?

To make sure this is something you want to do for your special occasion, you should know the true definition of a party bus, which underscores its difference from a conventional limousine. In brief, like limousines, party buses are also operated by experienced, sober drivers (hopefully) with proper licensing, but party buses can hold anywhere from 10-40 people depending on your party size and budget (the owner of Zappos even has a party bus that seats 60!). Party buses also differ from even the best stretch limousines because you and your friends can stand up and walk around freely when driving conditions permit or you’re parked.

Although party buses are being specially manufactured for this purpose, not all party buses started out that way. We have seen old school buses converted into party buses, as well as retired Greyhound buses. Although the inventor of the original party bus has been lost to history, perhaps the archetypical school bus turned party bus is best exemplified by Ken Kesey (author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) and his zany band of Merry Pranksters’ psychedelic party bus chronicled in Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. One version of the Merry Prankster’s party bus even featured a Plexiglas dome on the top for sightseeing. 

party bus interior

Although configurations differ and you probably won’t find many Plexiglas domes available, most party buses do offer many of the same features. Within the actual bus itself is something more spacious and magical than what you were used to on your ride to high school. Instead of rows of seats, there is usually long leather comfortable couch interior-facing seating on both sides of the bus. Many party bus companies offer plus leather seating. The floor is typically laminated so that spilled alcohol (and vomit) can easily be mopped up. The middle of the bus will usually have a stripper pole (or two) for the imaginary or real-life exotic dancers, depending on the package you select. Most party buses also have a state-of-the-art sound system, disco, strobe and/or neon lights, a cooler to keep drinks cold and hold ice, restrooms, and in some cases, even a retractable moon roof (but no dome). In rare instances, we have seen these buses come equipped with fully stocked bars and a Jacuzzi as well. In fact, even the Barbie line of dolls features a “Barbie Hot Tub Party Bus.”

Basically, the point of a party bus adventure is to take you and your friends to and from a location in a safe and comfortable manner, while you and your friends drink, smoke, snort, or whatever makes you happy while in transit. Many people decide to book party buses to take them on a bar crawl, to go clubbing, to sightsee or just to drive around aimlessly for 4 or more hours. After all, where else can you “drink and drive” and party legally? Alternatively, many American cities have a number of interesting historic and cultural attractions that can be enjoyed even more from the comfort of a party bus complete with all of the amenities. After spending a great deal of time as teens driving around with a can of beer held just below the car window, this freedom to legally imbibe and sightsee at the same time can be a truly exhilarating and releasing experience. Even traffic jams can be a blast when you have a party on wheels!

It should be pointed out that this is a perfect idea if you are traveling long distances, but if you are just going to a club 10 minutes away from your starting point, it would not make sense to entertain this option. In addition, it should be pointed out that some party bus operators do not comply with all required regulations and safety inspections and standards, so be sure to do your due diligence before booking a party bus for your bachelor or bachelorette party. Otherwise, if an accident occurs, the attorneys might be looking at you.

Party Bus Rentals

If you decided that booking a party bus is a great option for your group, the next step would be renting one. Since most of these buses are privately owned, the prices will differ from each company and each destination. Prices can start anywhere from $400 per hour up to $2000 per hour; the current average for hiring a party bus in the U.S. is $605. The rates are determined based on the following variables:

  • Type of Bus (newer buses with more amenities will naturally cost more);
  • Size of Bus (the more seating available, the more expensive);
  • Amount of Time (party buses are booked on an hourly basis, so the longer the rental time, the more expensive it will be)
  • Location and Date (specific cities will be more expensive, so will holiday weekends, peak times such as 5 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays when 80% of party bus business takes place, etc.)

Most party bus companies offer bachelor and bachelorette party packages beginning in minimum 4-hour increments. This means that even if you and your friends only use the party bus or a couple of hours, you’ll still be charged the full price so plan on spending the full amount of time purchased in order to get your money’s worth. In contrast to taxicab companies, the price charged by party bus companies also typically includes bus preparation and cleaning prior to and after your party and the driving time required to pick you and your friends up and return you to a destination of your choice.

Ideas for Party Bus

Food, Drink, Sounds, Decorations and Video

Finally, it’s not a party without plenty of good food and beverages, so make sure you plan an appropriate menu for the number of guests, taking into account you’re going to be moving so make sure you choose non-messy finger foods and snacks. If your bachelor or bachelorette party will take place during a meal time, plan on bringing at least eight of every item and five of each item for non-mealtimes for each guest.

Unless the party bus operator offers an open bar, plan on bringing enough booze, beer and other beverages so that everyone can have a couple of drinks during the first hour and another drink (or two) each hour thereafter. Be sure to bring plenty of choices (you might want to ask everyone what they prefer in advance).

In addition, your party bus will likely have a great sound system so take advantage of it by bringing your own favorite tunes (make a mixed DVD beforehand). You and your friends can also decorate your party bus for a bachelor or bachelorette party them if you want (use decorations that are easily removable), and party buses with televisions can play a video of the groom’s single days as a final celebration and lamentation of their passing.


We hope that after reading this article you know the true definition of a party bus and the amenities they offer, how the rental prices are calculated, and more specifically how to book one for your bachelor or bachelorette party. Given the luxurious accouterments provided by most party bus companies, this is a great option for getting a large group of people together for a night on the town, concert, or even local pub crawl.  This tends to be a much cheaper and safer option than traveling abroad for your final days of freedom. If possible, try to schedule your bachelor or bachelorette party later than 5 p.m. on weekdays and avoid Saturdays. Generally, Mondays through Thursdays are the best days to schedule party bus adventures. In addition, make every effort to plan ahead as far as possible to make sure you can get your preferred party bus and take advantage of any discounts that might be available. Finally, make sure the groom or bride has a good time, take plenty of pictures (create a digital photo album that can be shared with all attendees), and tip the party bus driver generously (15-20%) if he or she provided exceptional service. Have fun and par-tay!
